Ruby-Throated Hummingbirds White Mountains NH

Ruby-Throated Hummingbirds White Mountains NH are abundant at the Bartlett Inn Bed and Breakfast and Cottages near North Conway New Hampshire! Who would think that these little birds would enjoy the White Mountains of New Hampshire : These tiny birds run at a high temperature eating very frequently of nectar and sugar water!  This summer the Bartlett  Inn guests have enjoyed watching the humming birds at the dining room window feeders all through breakfast.  The trick to attracting the birds is to use the correct ratio of water and sugar.  1 part sugar to 3 parts water..no red food dye required.  It is such entertainment watching the various dances of the hummingbirds.  They are quite aggressive and territorial toward each other….especially when it comes to food.  If one bird is at the feeder he will ward off another bird by fanning his tail out as large as possible suspendid in mid air.  We have also seen a mating dance where the male flys in perfect arcs over and over – almost looks like he is attached to a string going too and fro.  Come visit us at the Bartlett Inn and enjoy Ruby-Throated Humming bird watching from Mid May to end October.  1 800 292 2353. Fun for New England Bird Watchers, British Twitchers and anyone who likes a good nature show!

Did you know that there are  two Indoor Water Parks in North Conway New Hampshire? One is the Hampton Inn Indoor Water Park in North Conway NH and the other is the Kahuna Laguna Indoor Water Park at the Mountain View Resort in North Conway.
We enjoyed a visit to the Hampton Inn Indoor water-park with a group of kids who helped with Cleaning up North Conway and the surrounding area during Valley Pride Day. The staff was friendly and the lifeguards did a good job keeping order.  There was one kiddie pool with a raining tree and a slide and then 2 large slides, about 20 feet high that end in a 36 inch deep pool.  There was no actual large swimming pool so this is a fun place for the kiddie pool or the slides.  Entry fee is $15 per non guest for a 2 hour session which is more than enough time.  Our next trip will be to check out Kahuna Laguna!  We did go to Whales Tale Outdoor Water park in Lincoln over the summer and that was terrific…best on a very hot day…Santa’s Village also has a great new Water Park and again best on a hot day! Attitash NH has several outdoor water slides in the summer too with a kiddie splash pool. Come stay at the Bartlett Inn located near all the Water parks in North Conway NH!  We have a heated swimming pool and kids play area too!  Call Bartlett Inn for lodging near waterparks 1 603 374 2353.  Your stay at the Bartlett Inn includes personal concierge service including advice on hiking, Storyland, skiing, Waterparks, river tubing, moose and wildlife viewing and sightseeing!
